Mold is commonly known for being an eye sore or something that smells funky, but the reality is that prolonged exposure to this mold, specifically in confined places, can lead to a long list of serious and concerning health risks. Some of these mold related health risks include:
The longer one is exposed to high levels of mold, the more serious the risks are, which can eventually lead to chronic disease. Young people, along with the elderly and those suffering with respiratory issues are most at risk. In any case, if you find mold, or even suspect it, give the experts at Remediation 911 a call and we’ll provide you with a free mold inspection.
When you contact Remediation 911 for our mold removal and remediation services, the first thing we’ll do is complete an air quality test. This test will provide us with a better understanding of the type and concentration of mold we are dealing with which will allow us to tailor a removal and remediation plan specific to your needs.
If the environment is right, mold can spread through an entire building in a matter of days, making a quick response of the utmost importance. As soon as we have the results from the air test, we will set up a containment zone around the mold to prevent it from spreading during the removal process. By using proper protection equipment and advanced containment techniques (like advanced air filtration, negative air pressure, and complete ventilation containment) we can effectively contain the mold.
Our next step in the mold removal and remediation process is to begin removing the mold affected and damaged materials by following the current health and safety protocols. Our certified mold removal technicians will then go through your home or business, cleaning every surface within the affected area with an industrial grade antimicrobial wash, ensuring no mold spores remain.
At this point, the mold has been removed and the air inside your home or business should be clean and safe. But to ensure that we’ve removed all of the mold, it’s important that we do one more air test, known as a clearance test, that will show us where you air quality is after the remediation efforts. A clean test will allow us to move onto making any necessary repairs.
A clean result from the clearance test means that the mold damage in your property has been effectively removed, and the only thing left to do is repair any damages. As a licensed general contractor, Remediation 911 is able to make any repair, from minor drywall patches, to full scale remodels and reconstruction projects.
Mold is something we all know about, but may not be the most educated on what exactly it is or how it affects a home or business owner. Some of the most common question we get about mold include:
What is mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that exists in the air around us and on practically every surface. In nature, it is a vital part of the ecosystem, helping to break down organic matter.
Why does mold grow in homes?
Mold needs three things to grow, and those things just happen to exist in our homes: a moderate temperature, a food source (cellulose), and moisture.
Can I clean up mold myself?
While it is always best to call a certified mold removal company, small patches of mold may be able to be cleaned by yourself. If the damage is extensive or you are unsure about the process, please call Remediation 911 to schedule your free mold damage inspection.
How can I prevent mold growth in my home?
Mold growth is really comes down to having areas of high humidity in your home. To prevent mold growth, make sure that you address any water related disaster properly, and keep your inside humidity below 50%. Any areas of air stagnancy, like a basement or garage, should be remedied so that the air is allowed to circulate.
Because of the nature of mold damage, most homeowners insurance will only cover the damage if it was caused by a disaster that is covered under your policy. Mold that resulted from things like fire, water, or flood damage may be covered, but if it grew as a result of a humid or poorly ventilated area, the likelihood of getting coverage is slim.
To better understand your specific coverage, we implore you to call up your insurance provider and ask them to walk you through your mold coverage.
